Forum: announcements Subject: Digitizing All Balinese Literature

The Balinese, with the help of the Internet Archive and Ron Jenkins of Wesleyan University, have started digitizing the libraries of Balinese literature. They are in the running for being the first culture to have their entire literature go online, even current writings and lectures. It is an exciting development to see one of the most beautiful places and beautiful people on earth fully embrace the digital world. I find it interesting that Bali may lead the world in going fully online, while the west is stalling or stalled for various reasons.

Feature article in the Jakarta Times and an earlier piece on the project.

Developments will be posted here on archive.org and on the Archive Blog.

Go Bali!
